In Poland with So Ji-sub for spy drama My Secret Terrius
Hunkalicious ajusshi So Ji-sub (Oh My Venus) is coming back to the small screen with a new spy drama called My Secret Terrius. It’s being brought to us by the same writer from rags-to-riches drama Shopping King Louis, so I’m expecting there to be a ton of wacky humor. The teaser is super serious and a little typical of the spy genre, but I can’t help being suckered in by So Ji-sub’s lost puppy dog eyes.
My Secret Terrius is about a legendary black ops agent who disappeared from the intelligence community. The newly released 20-second teaser shows the charismatic spy side of So, as he disappears perfectly into the crowds of Warsaw, despite the satellite-cam tracking him as its primary target. The copy then reads: “Black ops agent Terrius has disappeared!”
Perhaps he could have stayed missing, nursing the hidden pain of his past, but then we wouldn’t have a K-drama, would we? So, of course there’s a nosy “ajumma”-next-door with fantasies of conspiracy, and she becomes entangled in a messy covert operation. (I agree with javabeans, calling the female lead Jung In-sun an ajumma is too much. Just like when they called Go Dok-mi an ajumma.) And former Agent Terrius can’t let her flounder alone…
Although the teaser only shows So, the rest of the cast has been confirmed with Jung In-sun (Woohoo Waikiki) as the plucky ajumma heroine. The second leads are Sohn Ho-joon (whose performance I really enjoyed in Go Back Spouses) and Im Se-mi (About Time). Terrius also has an amazing supporting cast that consists of Kim Yeo-jin (who I absolutely loved in Witch’s Court, Pride and Prejudice, Angel Eyes, and the list goes on and on…), Jung Si-ah (Super Family), Seo Yi-sook (who was absolutely terrifying in Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People), and Eom Hyo-sub (a steady presence in solid dramas like Life, I’m Not a Robot), UNIQ’s Sung Joo (You Drive Me Crazy!), and everyone’s favorite best friend Kang Ki-young (What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim).
Wednesday-Thursday drama My Secret Terrius will begin airing on MBC starting this September. Squeee!
